About the Position
We are seeking a dynamic, experienced bilingual advocate to serve as our Africa Legal Coordinator, advancing IDI’s casework and capacity building activities in the sub-Saharan Africa region.

In cases in which IDI is currently engaged in Guinea, Liberia, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo, the coordinator plays an instrumental role in building the capacity of community partners to engage effectively in non-judicial grievance redress processes and advocate for their rights with a range of actors, including government authorities, corporations, financiers, and investors. The Africa Legal Coordinator manages IDI’s Africa team and reports to the Legal and Policy Director.
